I just finished reading the first book of Robert Jordan's scifi Wheel of time series: the Eye of the World, and my question contains a subtle spoiler (so be careful!).
In the Eye of the World, the main characters travel to
and inside of them, they find
Trollocs that have been turned to stone. And although the Black Wind is described as being capable of draining your soul or causing you to go mad, nowhere does Jordan state that the Black Wind can turn living creatures to stone.
So I ask:
What turned the Trollocs to stone?
